"Nothing can ever take away a love the heart holds dear" and "The memory of you will always be in our hearts" are good in loving memory phrases. These sentiments are appropriate for epitaphs, guest book posts and wake invitations. Selecting the appropriate caring expression is a very personal decision.
Other tender memorial sayings include "Those that touch our lives stay in our hearts forever" and "Your life was a blessing; your memory is a treasure." The best memorial phrases recognize feelings of sadness but also invoke hope for the future. Sometimes the words reflect the deceased individual's characteristics and principles, such as " In memory of a life so beautifully lived and a heart so deeply loved."
